I have a perl script that I am using to send an automated email when members register for our site.  I would like to add a function that sends a form of variables to a URL.  What would be the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance

use LWP::UserAgent;
$ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;  

my $req = HTTP::Request->new(POST => 'http://www.perl.com/cgi-bin/BugGlimpse');

$req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
$req->content('match=www&errors=0');  

my $res = $ua->request($req);
print $res->as_string;
